gallery pieceThe world of Fine Art is not an easy one to comprehend; thus goes for the many artists who inhabit this vast realm of novelties and imagination. And, to those who dare tread into this domain of mystery and unexpectancy, disorientation and hallucination shall, in short time, become friends.

Seemingly lost, Jackie Watson, the French reporter, wandered aimlessly down the red carpet at the 2016 Galerie Montaigne event. Obviously, the intoxicating aura of the evening’s entrancing exhibits and anomalies along with the encompassing slew of celebrities, had Jackie a bit bewildered. But, such behavior is quite understandable and excusable, as art is a very powerful thing, indeed.

However, we must mention that the event, although popular amongst celebrities, is not one that is well known to the public. So, what exactly is the 2016 Galerie Montaigne event, you might be asking? Well, according to Jackie, it is a Jane Owen PR event which proudly displays a huge FABERGÉ egg. Oh my! Not quite what this event is about, but we will give our Jackie an “A” for effort.

The Galerie Montaigne itself, is an exhibition room located in the heart of the Beverly Hills, West Hollywood area. The gallery exclusively represents French Artists such as “FANO”, a sculptor who specializes in colored screws to create famous faces and fun-filled visual pieces. Periodically, the gallery holds openings to showcase its extensive list of wonderful exhibitors.

Many celebrities such as Ellen Hollman, Alexis Knapp, Katie Cleary, Melia Kreiling, AnnaLynne McCord, Heather Alexandra and Megan Williams were in attendance at the 2016 event.
